Inspections on the Atchafalaya Basin Bridge will lead to lane closures on Interstate 10 westbound in St. Martin Parish from Wednesday through Monday, the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development said.

Inspections in the westbound lanes between Henderson and Ramah are scheduled from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday and from 7 a.m. to noon Thursday and Monday, the agency said in a news release.

DOTD said the closures will likely cause delays on the interstate and encouraged motorists to consider using alternate routes.

Bad weather may lead transportation officials to alter the schedule for the inspections, the agency said.
